The shoulders were a bit tight, but the chest was comfortable and waist had a bit of room. Length seemed alright but I was wearing shorts. I'm debating if I should try to find a 50 so the chest will be tighter or just go for it. Getting a size 52-anything seems slightly ridiculous to me though..

Sounds weird to me. I couldn't imagine getting a 52 and my chest is 40 inch if not more. Sleeves and length would look just ridiculously long. RO won't fit everyone e.g. me.

RO jackets sizing is weird to me, you see some 54 and barely hitting 18" shoulders.

Black suede stooges. Has RO ever done regular suede before? Seems like it's usually blistered.

browns fashion carried this suede jacket this past season

What do you guys think of this jacket with a stand up collar? Not sure if the fit is slim enough.

looks really good DL. for the record would you mind stating your measurements and how you sized, you basically went down one right? (i am trying to 'enable' a friend who i would guess has a similar build..)

DL, looks good.

Never known new season rick leathers by so inexpensive. Some of the new ones this season are retailing under £1000, the suede ones seem pretty cheap as well.

 

offsets against the price of the shearlings.

i take a peek around boutiques maybe 3-4 times a year and i have to say that with most high fashion brands, sizing really tends to depend on the season. i learned the hard and really expensive way that designers select models based on what cuts they're offering and what looks good on them may not look good on you.

for that reason i'm alright with buying baller shoes online, but never leathers. i always try in person, don't like hassle of returns.

Thanks yall, looks like it is a keeper.

fwiw I went with my regular size, a 50.
post #8174 of 11590
Yeah the 5-zip is generally true to size or up 1 depending on the year and the model. My 52 all black fits super tight in the waist but fine everywhere else, and I am a 32 waist, 40 chest, 6'2".
